    This is good. It was easy to make and would be even better with homemade stock. I used alphabet noodles, which made my son really happy, but I think a chewier noodle like ditalini would be better here.

    Very easy and delicious - fast and worked as a weeknight dinner with leftovers for lunch the next day.

    Great soup I've made many times. The meatballs are the best part.

    I made the meatballs a few days ahead and froze them. The meatballs were fairly easy to make, but required 2 sheet pans to roast. Since the meatballs were frozen, I simmered them longer while the pasta cooked, which worked well. Canned chicken broth tasted fine to us. The soup was delicious! There were tons of meatballs - could use fewer. We added lots of cheese.

    The meatballs themselves are delicious!

    I have made this recipe more times than I can't count--it's a classic.

    The meatballs in this are very very tasty and the soup itself is quite good. I do think you need homemade stock though as the broth is very simple otherwise.

    Italian Wedding Soup is one of my favorites. This soup is hearty enough for a meal. Use it for my annual Christmas ships dinner, a crowd pleaser.

    p. 72 - 2010 - First attempt w this rec that will now be a fave. I made meatballs in advance and froze so I can make portioned soup on demand w little fuss. Just added required amt into broth to defrost and heat through. Used 1 box chx stock and 1/4c ditalini for 2 servings. Topped w parm. Soup was extremely flavourful. K-9/10.
